Dhadak's shoot concluded in April this year. It was between the shoot of Dhadak that Janhvi Kapoor's mother and veteran actress Sridevi died due to accidental drowning in a Dubai hotel. Janhvi put up a brave face and was back to shoot the film within a few days
Sairat was critically acclaimed for its content and performances by newcomers Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar.
Janhvi is the elder of the two daughters Sridevi had with Boney Kapoor. She and her younger sister Khushi are among the most photographed youngsters in Bollywood today as the paparazzi keeps a close eye on what they wear -- whether to a party or to a gym
"It's flattering that anyone would care what I look like after the gym. I feel like I haven't done anything to earn that attention, so I don't know how to react. Should I smile and wave because they've been waiting and it's courteous? Or should I hide because I'm sweaty?" Janhvi Kapoor asked
While Sridevi, who died in Dubai in February, always looked perfect, Karan Johar said Janhvi Kapoor and her younger sister Khushi Kapoor have emerged as "teen fashionistas" who are "unknowingly setting trends"
Jahnvi Kapoor said that other than films, fashion is something that they bond over. "We love clothes and are roughly the same size. We enjoy dressing up. Papa would call us 'three women on a mission' when we shopped. He has always been very into our look -- he would approve them or make us change. And all of those photos of mom and me before events? He clicked them," she said
In an earlier interview with PTI, Shashank Khaitan talked about Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, saying, "They are great people and are very hardworking, these are two things that I always look for in actors. They are good people who respect others and are dedicated to their work and ready to give their best."
While Dhadak, which is the Hindi remake of Marathi film Sairat, will mark Janhvi Kapoor's foray into Bollywood, Ishaan Khatter has already made his acting debut with Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi's India-set movie Beyond The Clouds and this one marks his second Bollywood film
Ahead of the film's trailer release, Dhadak's lead actors Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter met their director Shashank Khaitan. We have pictures
